How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Manassas Park you count on your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. A dirty air filter can stop air flow, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you could have to have a furnace repair. The sooner you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Woody's Sudden Service Inc.

1. Your furnace is loud. You could have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You might have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could signal a few specific problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be a problem with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t big enough for your space.
4. Your monthly bill keeps climbing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps climbing. This could signal several different problems. Your HVAC expert will help sort out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, stop your furnace at once and shut off its gas supply. Don’t light any matches or turn on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your system.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to remedy.
